Pakistan Foreign Minister admits Jammu and Kashmir is ‘Indian state’

"India has given an impression to the world that life has returned to normalcy (in Jammu and Kashmir).

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said,”if the life has returned to normalcy, then I say why don’t they allow you, international media, why don’t they allow international organizations, the NGOs, civil society organizations to go into the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and see for themselves what the reality is.”

“India has given an impression to the world that life has returned to normalcy (in Jammu and Kashmir).

Qureshi was speaking to media persons after addressing the UN Human Rights Commission during which he made several claims and levelled unsubstantiated allegations against India.

Pakistan’s move to take the issue to the UNHRC comes after facing rebuff from most of the countries to its attempts to rope in third-party intervention to make India revoke its decision.

It virtually pleaded with countries like the US and Russia and also tried to get support from the Gulf nations by using the Muslim card.

Pakistan has even tried to blackmail the world community with threats of war with India and by saying that it would not be able to help in international war against terrorism in Afghanistan.

However, all nations maintained that they would not like to get involved, with most saying that it is India’s internal matter and some others saying that any issue over Jammu and Kashmir should be resolved bilaterally by India and Pakistan.

New Delhi has maintained that since Jammu and Kashmir has legally acceded to the Union of India in 1947, all matters related to the state are internal.
